I askin' the same. I don't know how to make a script to turn on before install the firmware.

It's not a script; and I'm afraid the solution is more challenging for newer users.

Basically, the only way to turn on something in software - before you install that software, is to configure it as such. OpenWrt has WiFi off by default for security, so you will have to build a custom image, pre-loading it with a wifi-enabled /etc/config/wireless file.
